Art

Students have a range of qualifications they can achieve during their time in Art & Design or Textiles. We offer NCFE Awards in Level 1 and 2 and GCSE Art & Design through NCFE.
Students create a portfolio of work that explores different materials and develop an understanding of the visual and tactile qualities of them. They develop techniques for manipulation of different craft materials and develop the use of tools required, whilst ensuring that they observe the health and safety aspects of the materials, tools and techniques used.
Students go on to research and compare artists  and contexts to inspire their ideas for craft.
Students plan, produce and evaluate their own craft work.It is important students evaluate the whole creative process and record the challenges they faced and any areas for improvement. The students craft work is presented within the classrooms and corridors of the school, inviting positive discussions between peers and teachers.
